Chronological Bible: July 12, Of life and spiritual laws…
- Jeremiah 14:1-15:9
- Jeremiah 16:1-17:27
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” –Jeremiah 17:7-8, ESV
The natural progression of trusting in God is living an “oh how very happy” life. Like natural laws, where Einstein did his work, there are spiritual laws. Not the four spiritual laws found in a salvation tract, but spiritual laws where if one thing happens another thing happens as a spiritual result.
Over and over in scripture, we find promises and evidence that trusting on God and obeying His Word results in blessedness. It may not come in sweepstakes winnings and luxurious homes, but the peace riddled with oh-how-very-happy-ness will come. Trust His leading. Follow His word. And the spiritual laws will bear fruit in your heart, mind, and life.
